Energy Matters Power Monitor


The Energy Matters Power Monitor approximately measures the electricity generated by a solar power system and also the energy consumed by the household. It can be used to confirm a solar power system is working properly and also help monitor and reduce household energy consumption.

 

The system consists of two elements - the monitoring devices and an online interface.

   

THE POWER MONITOR

 

The physical power monitor element consists of  a gateway (plugged into a router via Ethernet), two battery powered sensors and a transmitter with antenna.

 

The sensors are attached to cables in the switchboard. The transmitter relays the information to the gateway, which sends the data through a secure connection to a central database via the user's WiFi network and broadband connection. 

 

The batteries in the transmitter should last 1-2 years and are simple to replace.

Users can login to the secure My Energy Matters interface via their handheld device or computer and view how their system is performing 24/7; plus monitor power consumption in real time, view charts and set email alerts. Features will be regularly added to the online interface as they are developed.
